Biography

When the humanitarian crisis unfolded in Calais, Northern France, Josie’s instinct was to utilise her experience of social media and her established career in the music industry in order to support vulnerable groups neglected on Britain’s doorstop. Three years later, Josie is Co-founder and CEO of Help Refugees, a non-profit organisation funding over 80 projects across Europe and the Middle East. Working closely with Lord Alf Dubs, Josie is a leading advocate for refugee rights in the UK and has lead the fight to reopen the Dubs amendment; a legislation offering sanctuary to unaccompanied children stranded across Europe.
